Catch this week's latest Bollywood flick Break Ke Baad, starring Imran Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sharmila Tagore, Shahana Goswami, Lillete Dubey and Yudhishtr Urs. Break Ke Baad is a romantic film with strong elements of drama in it. Abhay Gulati (Imran Khan) and Aaliya Khan (Deepika Padukone) have been childhood buddies since they were four, and this takes shape into a romantic relationship as they grow up together. Aaliya is an ambitious girl who wants to take up acting as a career, whereas Abhay is still unsure about what he wants to do and finds himself competing with Aaliya's incessant plans and projects to fulfil her dreams. While their relationship sustains because of their personality differences, the baggage because of these differences also grows discreetly. Aaliya decides to leave India for Australia to achieve her dreams and this leaves the two of them in a fix. What remains to be seen is whether the two of them will let go of their dreams to be with each other or will it lead to a permanent break-up?
You can also watch director Faruk Kabir's Allah Ke Banday, starring Sharman Joshi, Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni and Anupam Kher in theatres this week. Allah Ke Banday revolves around the life of two 12-year-old boys living in one of the most ruthless slums in India. They are involved in all kinds of illegal activities, right from delivering drugs for the mafia to looting people with their transvestite friend. But one day, the two are wrongly convicted for a murder and sent to the Juvenile Reformatory. There they discover a world more chaotic and tough to survive in than the one they left behind.
Hollywood is all set to unveil director Tony Scott's latest action flick Unstoppable, starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Dawson and Kevin Dunn. This film is based on real life events that have occurred in the past. An unmanned goods train takes off carrying combustible liquids and poisonous gases. A veteran engineer (Denzel Washington) and a young conductor (Chris Pine) board another train on the same path and frantically try to stop the half-mile-long freight train which will otherwise crash in a densely populated area and cause mass destruction.
You can also catch the American biographical film Secretariat, starring Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh and Amanda Michalka. Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) is a housewife and mother who agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of knowledge about derby. With the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich), Chenery manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
Avid fans of Kannada films can watch director Sandeep Gowda's latest film Bisile in theatres this week. Bisile, starring Diganth, Pranitha Subhash and Jennifer Kotwal, revolves around two trekkers who lose their way while they are on a trek to Bisile Ghat.
